When was the painting deep in the winter woods painted by grif teller?
I have a framed print of Deep in the Winter Woods . The original painting was almost certainly used by the Osborne Company for their calendar line and the print has the title printed at the bottom. I am Grif's daughter and remember many such prints from my childhood. I can't remember precisely when this one was painted but it was most likely in the 1940's, give or take a few years.

Go to a good hardware store and tell them your problem. You will probably have to get a fine grit sandpaper to sand off the latex and probably the whole piece and then restain the piece of furniture. Just before you do that (latex is water soluable) take a damp cloth and lay it on the stain. Then wi…th one of those dish scrubbers (the ones with the one side that is yellow and the other side green) gently scrub this area. It's worth a try before you go to the hardware store.. (MORE)
Answer . If you want the paint to stay on the peice of furniture your painting, get some fine sandpaper and rough up your surface first. This will guarentee your paint wont flake off. Hope this helps.
Grif Teller \n. \nâUntouched by Time,â a painting by Grif Teller was most likely completed in the early 1930âs. Examples of this painting can be seen on advertising calendars produced by the Osborne Company in the 1930âs, 1940âs and early 1950âs.\n. \nThe Osborne C…ompany, through the development of several innovations of the color printing process, achieved national status in the early 1900s. In 1932, the company moved into new facilities in Clifton, New Jersey and was positioned as one of the largest full-color printing companies in the world. Subsidiary companies produced children's books, posters, blotters, timetables, puzzles and other printed advertising forms. Contests were held in which salesmen with the largest sales were awarded an original work of art from the company collection. There were many large American business clients that engaged the Osborne Company for printed calendars, timetables, posters and playing cards. The Osborne Company ceased to exist by 1958.\n. \nGrif Teller was most widely known for painting a long series of calendar art for the Pennsylvania Railroad, once the largest and most influential transportation company in the United States. For more than 30 years, Grif captured on canvas the spirit and soul of the Pennsy, working each year to produce a single oil painting to represent the giant carrier that employed hundreds of thousands of people and whose rails stretched into 14 states. The paintings enjoyed wide exposure as the center pieces of the railroadâs annual wall calendar -- more than 300,000 copies of each yearâs edition were printed and distributed to customers, shippers and friends of the railroad throughout the world. Grif painted the lionâs share of the Pennsyâs calendar art; the series lasted from 1925 through 1958, and of those, he painted the scenes for 1928 through 1942 and 1947 through 1958. These paintings also found their way onto desk and pocket calendars, playing cards, postcards and the covers of timetables, maps, and annual reports. Even after the wall calendar era closed in 1958, Grif continued to paint for the PRR, producing two scenes used in desk and wallet calendars for 1960 and 1961.\n. \nBorn December 9, 1899, as the son of an insurance agent, Grif grew up around Newark, New Jersey, never far from the steam engine whistles of the nearby Erie and Lackawanna railroads. He graduated from the School of Fine and Industrial Arts in Newark and went to work in 1918 for the Osborne Company in the same city. While working in the Osborne shipping department, he took night classes at the Art Studentsâ League of New York. Osborne became the key to his future as portraitist of the PRR, for it was a large and pioneering art calendar and advertising company that employed hundreds of salesman across the nation and in Canada and Australia. Osborne was sold to the American Colortype Company in 1954, and Grif remained for about a year thereafter before going to work for New York photographer, Leo Aarons, painting scenic backdrops. He completed the last few PRR scenes as a freelancer, painting them in his home. After Aarons closed his New York studio, Grif worked for the Rae Publishing Company of Cedar Grove, New Jersey, and retired from commercial art in 1968.\n. \nGrif remained active painting barns and landscapes, and filling orders for railroad paintings commissioned by a new generation of rail buffs. He painted more than 60 rail scenes after being rediscovered by the railfan community in 1974. Most of them were large 24 x 36 inch canvases, about 2/3 the size the PRR commissioned. Among Grifâs hobbies were music, gardening, fishing and travel -- the latter of which he used to gather ideas for painting subjects. Some of his favorite destinations were Vermont and upstate New York. He exhibited his works at the National Academy of Design.\n. \nGrif married his late wife, Mabel, in 1928 and lived in Little Falls, New Jersey, occupying the same house from 1937-1992. Grif and Mabel raised two sons and a daughter there.\n. \nGrif Teller died on April 8, 1993.\n. \n. \nAdditional information about Grif Teller may be found in the following:\n. \nBOOKS:\nCrossroads of Commerce,\nThe Pennsylvania Railroad Calendar Art of Grif Teller by Dan Cupper\nÂ©1992, Great Eastern Publishing Company \n ISBN 0-9625602-1-9 \n. \nCrossroads of Commerce,\nThe Pennsylvania Railroad Calendar Art of Grif Teller by Dan Cupper\nÂ©2003, Stackpole Books \n ISBN 0-8117-2903-6 \n. \nVisions of the Pennsylvania Railroad\nÂ©1992, The Penn Central Corporation\nLibrary of Congress Catalog Card Number 91-62817\n ISBN 0-916371-11-5 \n. \n. \nPERIODICALS:\nThe Pennsy, Volume 2 Number 1, January 1953\nâGrif Teller, PRR Calendar Artistâ\n. \nThe Keystone, Volume 11, Number 2, June 1978\nâGrif Teller, Visions of a Railroadâ by Walter P.

Answer . Sanding off the old layer.. If it was an oil based stain, you might have to use a stain-stripper.. how to remove paint . i dont think you can remove it but you can paint it again after it dried
Answer . The painting is titled, "The Greatest Dawn in American History - February 22, 1732." It depicts Washington's birthplace, Wakefield at Pope's Creek, Westmoreland County, Virginia. The painting was completed in 1931 by Grif Teller. It was used to promote the bicentennial anniversary of Wa…shington's birth in 1932. (MORE)
It all depends on the type of wood and finish, if you have that cheap computer desk type of wood furniture, that would be a tough one. I have had a Jarrah table and heavy wood furniture and I found the only way is to try and pick as much paint off with your finger nails as possible and then lay a sa…turated cloth and leave it to soak for awhile, in most cases if you leavr it long enough it will eventually loosen the paint and it will make the paint slide off, it worked for me and this was house paint (MORE)
I generally use an oil-based primer to start, because of its superior penetrating ability and because it will not be degraded by the wood's natural oils as they leach out (cedar is especially prone to this effect). After priming, a good-quality latex top coat will hold its colour much longer than oi…l. Ideally you should apply one coat of primer and two top coats, but a time and money saver is to have the primer tinted to match the finish colour, then use only one top coat. Bear in mind, though, that this approach will diminish the life of the paint job. (MORE)
What do you mean? Yes, paint on wood trim is typically latex these days. Some older homes may still have alkyd (oil), though. To find out for sure, put a little nail polish remover on a cotton swab and rub it on the paint in an inconspicuous location. It it gets soft and starts to come off, it's lat…ex. Either way, sand it lightly and recoat with the same type of paint and you're good.. If you're asking about bare wood, DON'T USE LATEX! The water will swell the grain of the wood. Use an oil primer that is made to take latex topcoats. (MORE)
To remove paint from wood floors you can use a blow dryer to heatthe paint. Next get a rubber scraper to scrape the paint off.Continue alternating between the scraper and the dryer until all ofthe paint is removed.
The paint unlike stain sits at the surface of the wood and gives it the colour but it does not soak through. Ha ha golden
In order to prep the wood for Elastomeric paint you will have tosand and clean the wood. It should also be primed before beingpainted.
if bare wood surfaces prime with a latex enamel undercoater primer. or depending on the finish use a primer if not sure just use oil. but no matter what with these primers u are still able to use latex on top.
Sure, go ahead.. I would use a water based paint, but finish it with several coats of shellac, children tend to put toys in their mouths, shellac will not hurt them.
I don't see why not, many Fabric Paints are Acrylic, which means the're water based, I think there is an oil based Fabric Paint, which ever you deside to use, when and/or if you deside to put a finish coat on your project, make sure you use a water based finish with a water based fabric paint and an… oil based finish with a oil based fabric paint. The only difference between Fabric Paint and Regular Paint is the fabric paint has an ingredient in it to make it washable. (MORE)
If there are small paint drops that can be removed using warm waterwith a soft cloth. For larger paint marks try using denaturedalcohol, mineral spirits or boiled linseed oil.
If you've sanded down through the wood veneer to where you are seeing plain pressed wood, first use a sanding sealer. This will keep the new paint from penetrating the pressed wood, which would cause it to expand. After the sanding sealer dries, apply a primer and let dry (refer to instructions on a…ppropriate drying time; it could be several days.) Now you are ready to paint! (MORE)
The best way to remove enamel paint from wood is using paintstripper, in a well-ventilated area. After the majority of thepaint is removed, use a fine-grit sandpaper to sand the area. Wipethe area down with a soft, clean cloth to remove any dust from thesandpaper.
Painted Turtles will bury themselves under the sand at the bottom of a lake. They will hibernate there until winter, breathing stored air and oxygen slowly created by plants around them.
You can use water based or oil based enamel paint, I suggest an oil based paint for projects used outdoors.
i need help getting some paint of a deck . if anyone knows how please help..
The painting, Sunshine Lights the Homeward Road , was painted by Grif Teller, no later than 1936. The image was used by The Osborne Company on advertising calendars for 1937 and 1938. The text below was included with each calendar: SUNSHINE LIGHTS THE HOMEWARD ROAD Reproduced from the Orig…inal Painting by Grif Teller Published and Copyrighted by The Osborne Company, Clifton, New Jersey From Grif Teller's golden palette comes this picture, bathed in the sunlight of a July afternoon. He and the sun painted it together. It was the sun which dappled green leaves with flecks of brilliant yellow, painted blue shadows in the depths of foliage, drew a soft veil over dazzling distances, patterned even a commonplace fence-rail it designs in purple and gold, highlighted a man's strong shoulders and the broad flanks of farm horses. With a master's touch, the artist has captured all this harmony of warm color: the delicate foliage of bending boughs, the hint of deep woodland where perhaps a brook goes singing, the firm earth of mown field and country road, the tread of horses' hoofs, the quiet poise of manhood at the picture's heart. He has done more: somehow - one wonders how - he has suggested the working day which now draws to its close. It has been one of those priceless days in haying-time, not shadowed by threatening skies, not interrupted by nervous cloud-ward glances. And now, upon the homeward road, we remember that at this high season of the year the sunshine lasts well beyond "quitting time," so there will still be an hour or two for work, companionship and laughter in the home garden, where the same sun is making flowers bloom and vegetables ripen. "How good is man's life, the mere living!" In the warmth of the sunshine that floods the picture, we muse upon the sun as mother of earth's good things -- of color and food, of the brown legs of healthy children, the deep lungs of outdoor men and women, spreading trees, fragrant hay, and the kind light that shines upon field and road and the familiar doorstep of home.

You may be able to, but there is a very specific procedure you haveto follow to make sure it works. You might also want to look intostaining.
To, get it off of my table ( I was doing a diy project) I used pure acetone. You can but it at any beauty store.
Paint can be applied over varnish, but it needs to be a compatible type of paint for the type of varnish, and the surface needs to be prepared by removing loose material, dirt and sanding. If it is not a compatible paint the surface needs to be etch primed. Contact a local paint supplier for advice.… (MORE)
When you are painting, remember to paint with the grain and after you paint it (if it will be outside) let it sit and then water proof it.
Yes. It does that all the time....ask anyone that has owned a house in New England.
Yes, prime with a 100% acrylic high adhesion primer, then coat with either a water based or oil based enamel paint for durability.
You certainly can. It absorbs very evenly into the wood. However, you will have to seal it, as the gouache could reactive or fade. I would suggest a spray clear coat.
shallow in a painting means light mellow colors like ones that are faded and deep means dark and thick.
It is called a shallow or a deep painting. Shallow means it has light colors. Deep means it has contrast between light and dark such as shadowing.
No. It will definitely leave a "stain", if you will, but it will come off with use. A specially formulated compound must be used that bonds with the concrete. See your local Home Depot or Lowes. It's not cheap.
You can, but it is usually recommended that you wait a year before you do it.
Yes you can. There are many types of wood preservative but once they are thoroughly dry, the wood can be painted. You should read the instructions on the label of the preservative to see if there is any specific reference or recommendations in this regard. If not, I would recommend an oil based prim…er prior to painting. An oil based primer will help ensure a good bond and isolate the finish paint from the chemicals in the preservative which might leach into the finish coat and discolor it or chemically degrade it. Water based primers are probably ok too, but , you should look for a claim of stain sealing ability on the primer label if using a water based primer. (MORE)
Depends entirely on the kind of wood and how you prepare it. ( there is more than one kind of 'wood' )
You should apply paint only for the uses recommended on the can. READ the instructions.
The advantage of using paint for wood is that it makes the wood look nicer. The disadvantage of using paint for wood is that the wood as no real protection and it can rot and get damaged easily!
To get a clearer picture we should know what enamel is and what epoxy is. According to The Free Dictionary by Farflex, enamel is "A paint that dries to a hard glossy finish" and epoxy is, "a thermosetting resin; used chiefly in strong adhesives and coatings and laminates." When epoxy is used as a pr…imer for the purposes of adhesion resistance then we cannot call it enamel. Therefore, epoxy enamel is a synthetic paint based on alkyd resin used as a coating medium on metal, wood, and concrete where hardness and good flexibility are required. Epoxy coatings appear glossy with increased resistance to spillage of chemicals, solvents, and grease. EPOXY PAINT and/or EPOXY ADHESIVES can literally be applied to virtually anything. But its very important to remember that as with any 'over-layer' type applications like what we are speaking about, preparation is 90% of a superior job. i say 'superior' because why bother to do a project if your going to do it 1/2-butt since you'll only be stuck with a larger, much more troublesome PROBLEM INSTEAD OF YOUR ORIGINAL project. PREPARATIONS: Keep in mind that for either one of your EPOXY products the surface must, not just should, be free of oils, dirt, etc. especially oily substances since this is one of the few things that make it difficult for most applications to properly adhere to, although like i said previously EPOXY can stick to just about anything, with the exception of 'fruits & vegetables'(and you know who you are). And imagine if you will, that it demands something to stick to or perhaps a better word would be 'GRIP' to. So scraping, sanding, sand-blasting, wire-brushing and the like are all means to prepping a surface properly. Then thoroughly clean the surface(s) and avoid cleaning with soapy-types and most others that tend to leave residuals. H2O is fine. Alcohol, rocket-fuel(which evaporates very quickly) or acetone work very well cleaning most things but when prepping plastics, alcohol is less damaging. Mineral Spirits would be my 2nd choice since it does leave a bit more residue than the others, but usually is none problematical. Oh, with wood, vac it off instead of just wiping. That should do it folks. Any more questions i suppose you can reach me through this service. (MORE)
For best results it is advisable to lightly sand, wipe with a tack-cloth and prime unfinished wood before using a top coat. This does not apply if you are staining.
You can try to remove chalk paint from wood using mineral spirits.Paint remover may also work, but it may strip the paint.
The short answer is yes. In the case of mdf (medium-density fiberboard) moldings, they usually come with a primer already on them. Which means that you may use any paint (oil, acrylic, latex or lacquer) as your top coat. In the case of mdf shelving or sheets (purchased in 4x8 or 4x4 sizes and …cut to whatever your purpose) it would be best to apply a good quality primer over the unfinished surface before applying your top coat. In the case of shelving, do remember the higher the gloss factor the harder the finish, which means less scratching and scuffing of the surface. If you are planning on using mdf as a ground for a painting, use a good quality gesso to prime the board. You may want to apply two thin coats with a light sanding between. I have found for the best possible smooth and even surface I lay the boards flat to dry, this eliminates drips that can show up in your finished painting. Once the gesso is completely dry, you may use standard artists' acrylics for your finished work of art. This also makes a good, inexpensive ground for air-brush work. (MORE)
No, you should never paint over mold. If it's substantial, you should hire a mold remediation company to remove it, if it's limited, use a 50:50 water to bleach mix to kill the mold, allow the area to dry completely, then clean the area, prime any bare wood and paint with either an oil or latex pain…t. Yes you can. You can paint on almost anything. The only thing with painting on moldy wood is that mold will soften the wood making the paint chip and crack easier. (MORE)
You may use any colours. Examples Brown,Black or even white. But you'll have to add the tonal grodation on the painting area(by adding a drop of white everytime) for white furniture add very very little grey everytime. Hope I've given your answers.
Yes. Oil paint is an excellent coating for interior woods. A 100% acrylic paint would be better for an exterior wood finish though because it will hold up better to the sun and is able to withstand repeated freeze-thaw cycles without cracking peeling.
Most baseboards are wood, or at least chipboard. Yes, they should be painted and most I've seen are painted semi gloss white.
The website "Deep Paint" offers advice on repainting your house. They offer color scheme suggestions and instructions on the most efficient methods for painting different rooms.
Yes, but it peals very easily, thus it is better to use specificwood paints, rather than fabric ones. Hope this helps.
The best way to make a paint job is last to prepare the surfacewell and use the right coating. The solvent acts as a deliverysystem for the paint, evaporating as the coating dries, leaving thebinders and pigment on the wall. A primer should be used any timeto paint. In fact, priming is one of the mo…st important things todo, aside from being sure the surface, to ensure a lasting job. (MORE)

Yes but flat colors best and you will still see seams in design-ifit has. It also absorbs paint but some buy just to paint over toget the effect
